Well not the biggest guy in the woods but he's a definite trophy to me. I worked on getting close to this guy and a couple others since Wednesday night, and finally got it done last night. I started off by hunting Wed. from somewhat of an observatory spot since I hadn't had an opportunity to do any pre-hunt scouting, and just kept creeping in closer and closer. I had seen a good number of deer coming out each night but last night this was the only guy that showed up, but that was all I needed. I was concerned about the shot I made and saw him bed down in some thick brush along the creek after running out of the cut bean field. After calling my brother last night and talking w/ him about what happened he helped me make the decision to wait until this morning to go after him. He had gotten back up and last night and traveled another 150yds. or so before bedding again and giving up. The muzzleloader did the trick at about 180yds. but the shot was back in the stomach area and all I was trailing was a few drops of blood here and there and stomach matter. He pretty much stayed on a really well used deer trail and that helped alot in finding him. I am forever thankful to the Kearney family for allowing me to hunt on there farm the last couple years the hunts I've had here will memories I'll cherish forever.

Great looking deer, congrats! I got a buddy that goes out to Wakeeny(sp) every year. He has taken some dandy ones out there. It's amazing how many deer are out there with so much farm land and so little cover. Again, nice deer!

I was on private ground and actually didn't see any deer drives going on. Didn't even hear alot of shooting. The movement was good but slow compaired to years before. Late season+food source= success!! I think your on to something there Henry:whistle: I have a buddy that hunts in the same area we do that insists on waiting until the late season and he seems to get er done everytime.
